The 1080 is the pinnacle offering from New Balance’s running lineup. A combination of top-of-the-line performance technology and wide-ranging accessibility offers runners at every level of intensity more comfort over more distance. Simply put, there isn’t another shoe quite like the 1080. The Fresh Foam X 1080v12 represents a consistent progression of the model’s signature qualities. The smooth transitions of the pinnacle underfoot cushioning experience are fine-tuned with updated midsole mapping, which applies more foam to wider areas of the midsole and increases flexibility at the narrower points. The ultra-modern outlook is also reflected in the 1080’s upper construction. The v12 offers a supportive, second-skin style fit with an engineered Hypoknit upper, for a more streamlined overall design.
